Unfortunately I forgot to get screenshots for this step, so it's going to be a bit short, but basically, start up the management site on the Windows Azure Pack management server (VAMGT01 in our environment), and navigate to https://vamgt01:30091/#Workspaces/SystemCenterAdminExtension/quickStart.

From there, click the link directly underneath "Register Service Management Automation for VM Clouds" and enter the url for System Mangement Automation endpoint we installed on VASCM01, i.e. https://vascm01:9090.

Once that's complete, it should look like below.


SPF Part 6 - Installing System Management Automation


In the previous few posts we installed System Center 2012 R2 Service Provider Foundation and registered it with the Windows Azure Pack admin site. Now that's complete we also need to install and register another additional System Service Center 2012 R2 component, namely Service Management Automation.

System Prerequisites

Having installed all the prerequisites for Virtual Machine Manager and Service Provider Foundation, there's still one more system feature we need to install on VASCM01 for Service Management Automation, as follows:

  Add-WindowsFeature -Name "Web-Url-Auth"

We also need to create another app pool account:

      New-ADUser -Name "SMAAppPool" -SamAccountName "SMAAppPool" -DisplayName "SMA App Pool Service Account" -Enabled $true -ChangePasswordAtLogon $false -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString "mypassword" -AsPlainText -force) -PasswordNeverExpires $true

      $admins = [ADSI]"WinNT://./Administrators,group"

      New-ADGroup -Name "SMAAdminSiteUsers" -SamAccountName "SMAAdminSiteUsers" -GroupCategory "Security" -GroupScope "Global" -DisplayName "SMA Admin Site Users" -Path "CN=Users,DC=va,DC=local" -Description "Members of this group can access the SMA Admin Site"

      Add-ADGroupMember -Identity "SMAAdminSiteUsers" -Members "Domain Admins"
